Younger Children Should Keep Learning

Younger children haven't mastered the skills they're learning yet, so it's easier for them to lose them. A much older student might take a few weeks off from reading and math and jump back in with a skill set that's already been established.

  1. The first and most important step is your involvement. Attending the conference is essential to building a relationship with your child’s teacher, and opening lines of communication will show the school and your child that you care and are involved in his education.

How to Effectively Use Praise in Your Parenting

Children need plenty of feedback as they are growing up. There is no doubt about that. It is what helps teach them right from wrong and keeps them on track. Parents are usually pretty quick and consistent in point out the things they need to improve upon. But when it comes to praise, it may be a stickier issue, yet an important one. Focusing on giving an appropriate amount of praise is important in raising a healthy kid.

PBIS stands for Positive Behavior Intervention & Support

Core Principles...

  1. Get your child’s yearly checkup. School and germs go hand in hand, so it’s best to get your child’s yearly checkup before school even starts. Get any required vaccinations and ask your pediatrician the best ways your child can stay healthy throughout the school year.
  2. Shop for school supplies together. To get your child excited about starting a new grade, shop for supplies together. Allow them to pick out their own backpack, lunchbox, etc.

Grade school kids are just learning how to interact with their classmates and make friends. But those who have trouble speaking and other issues may need your help to learn how to communicate their thoughts and feelings.

1. Talk regularly with your child.

Kids who have trouble communicating may be reluctant to talk at all. Your job is to encourage your child to initiate or engage in conversation as much as possible so she begins to feel more comfortable sharing her thoughts.

Tips for Asking Questions

How and when parents ask questions may make a big difference. Avoid asking all of the suggested questions [listed further in this article] on the same day. Try starting with one or two, and after a while, focus on the ones that elicit the most meaningful responses. Talk to your child during a time when you have the ability to focus so that your child feels he or she has your full attention.
